HELD SECRET OF HAPPINESS
John Wesley's Nearly Ninety Years
Passed With Rjmarkably Few
Periods of Depression.
There was John Wesley. His "Jour
nal, with Its record of Indefatigable
lubor. Is one of the cheeriest books In
the language. What a rare good time
he had ! When he was eighty-seven he
could say, "I do not remember to have
felt lowness of spirits for a quarter
of an hour since I was born." For
more than sixty years this indefatig
able pleasure-seeker had" been doing
as he pleased. Up every day in time
to preach at Ave o'clock in the morn
ing; then over the hills or through
the pleasant lanes to preach again at
the time lazy citizens were ready for
breakfast; off again, on Horseback, or
by -chaise or in a lumbering stage
coach, for more preaching. ... Now
and then facing a mob, or being wet
through in a thunder storm, or stop
ping to get Information in regtxrd to
some old ruin. Between sermons he
refreshed his mind with all sorts and
conditions of books. On the pleasant
road to Chatham he reads Tasso's
"Jerusalem Delivered." On the road
to Aberdeen he loses himself delight
edly in the misty sublimities of Os
sian. "Orlando Furioso" is good Satur
day reading. The eager octogenarian
confesses that "Astolpho's shield and
horn and voyage to the moon, the
lance that unhorses everyone, the all
penetrating sword, .and I know not
how many impenetrable helmets and
shields' are rather too much for his
sober English imagination. Still, they
afford an agreeable interlude In his
missionary Journeys. Samuel Mc
Chord Crothers, in "Among Friends."
YOUTH NOT GOLDEN SEASON
Modern Writer Takes Issue With Oth
ers Who Have Dubbed It the Best
Period of Life.
Following is from "The Way of All
Flesh," by Samuel Butler not the
Seventeenth century poet but the
Nineteenth century novelist:
"To me it seems that youth is like
spring, an overpraised season delight
ful if it happen to be a favored one,
but in practice very rarely favored
and more remarkable, as a general
rule, for bltingeast winds than geni
al breezes. Autumn is the mellower
season, and what we lose in flowers
we more t""i gain in fruits. Fontelle.
at the age of ninety, being asked what
was the happiest time of his life, said
he did not know that he had ever been
much happier than be then was, but
that perhaps his best years had been
those when he was between fifty-five
and seventy-five, and Dr. Johnson
placed the pleasures of old age far
higher than those of youth, rrue, in
old age we live under the shadow of
death, which, like a sword of Damocles,
may descend at any moment but we
have so long found life to be an affair
of being rather frightened than hurt
that we have become like the people
who live under Vesuvius, and chance
It without much misgiving."
Fireworks In History.
The business of making fireworks
and the business of setting off elabo
rate displays are sometimes called
The art of pyrotechny," the word "py
rotechny" being compounded of two
Greek words meaning "fire art" There
is an extensive literature on the sub
ject References may be found In the
writings of Manillas and Yesplcus to
the fact that fireworks were set off in
connection with the circus in ancient
Borne, and Clmr1""", who wrote in
the Fourth century, mentions "whirl
ing wheels and fountains of fire" In
connection with the celebration of cer
tain festivals. Fireworks, and which
should not ho coafoaaded with mere
bonfires, were set off as spectacles and
ceremonies during the reign of Henry
TO Henry VHL Elizabeth and other
EagUsh xaoaarchs. In those early
English, days dragons spoattog fire

CHARLES E. BETTER STUMP, THE
REGULAR TRAVELING CORRE
SPONDENT FOR THE BROAD AX,
WHO HAS BEEN ENJOYING HJM-
' SELF WHILE LIVING ON THE FAT
OF THE LAND IN PHILADELPHIA
AND WASHINGTON, D. C.
Philadelphia, Pa. You will find me
away from sunshine, and now I am in
the chilly Philadelphia, and believe me,
honey, it is some change up here; but
I am going to fight it dut for a few
days and then get back down yonder,
so if you desire to get me a letter, just
send it to 822 Jefferson Street, Mont
I am of the opinion that there is not
a country in the civilized world with
so many different lands of civilizations
as we have right here in America; but
then we must just study it, for that
gives us more to think about and keeps
us busy trying to solve problems and
human problems at that.
Here I am in Philadelphia. I ride
where I please on the street cars, and
do not see a sign, "This end for
white." I just go in, pay the price, and
take my choice. When I go to the
stable where you go to get on the iron
horse and carriage, I do not see any
signs, but go in with the rest of the
passengers, and we all hustle for posi
tion in line, and each takes his turn. If
I am hungry I don't have to look for a
lunch place in that same stable marked
"Colored," but, like a man, I go in and
eat, pay the price and come out; and
my color has not faded or rubbed on
any other human being, but just as
soon as I leave Washington, and even
in Washington, the capital of the na
tion, I meet "Colored this and colored
that, and colored kill a yallar cat and
colored." I am made to remember
that I was born on the dark of the
moon and must go way back and sit
I am the same man in every section
of the country, and why do I become
so objectionable when I cross the line?
Just civilization conception differs,
that's all. Some day the time will come
when I will be regarded a man all over
this country and will be accorded the
privileges of a man. You want to
know what is going to do all this?
Education and Jesus in the hearts of
This world must yet learn the one
ness of the human race, especially this
part of the world. You may expect
anything as long as manhood is meas
ured by the color of skin and not by
brain. Brains rule the world and not
color. If you see a white fool and a
black fool, you only see two fools.
There arc thousands of white men in
this country who cannot measure up
to thousands of black men in the coun
try in brain, in cash, in culture and
refinement, but on their color they can
go where that black man would meet
sudden death if he would attempt to go.
But I am advocating brains, brains.
I am telling my people to think, And
as long as the school room is open and
you hear of hundreds of graduates,
you put it down that a better day is
just over the fence.
I want to pay my respects at this
time to Prof. G. W. Trenholm, presi
dent of the State Normal School,
Montgomery, AUl, an institution
which is taking on new life under his
administration, and will in a short time
rank with, the best in the country. This
school is as old as the hills, so to
speak. For many years at its head
was a white man, Prof. Patterson, and
he was considered a good white man.
He remained at the head until death
claimed him, and then followed a man
of our race, Prof. John W. Beverly,
who was the pioneer. He had been
connected with the school from the
days when man's memory goes back.
He knew it and had the respect and
love of the people. He started the ball
to rolling, and now steps in a younger
man, a man with a vision, and he is
just going on and on, making friends
and doing the work.
Prof. G. W. Trenholm is a school
man. I have known him for several
days myself, and I know he is an ag
gressive as well as progressive, and
he has connected with him brains. I

I have been dealing in education and
educational matters. I have been tc
so many schools and associated with
so many college presidents and profes

head is larecr than my body, and I
believe it is, but I do not want to get
that big head disease, for there is no
cure for it. If a horse gets the big
head they kill him, and if a man gets
the big head he dies at his own hands.
God help me to keep my head down.

come by Traveler.
How we all enjoy stories with a re
sourceful hero! No cornered hero of
romance ever showed more Ingenuity
than Mr. Itoy Chapman Andrews
showed when he ran out of motor oil
on the Gobi desert. We quote Mr.
Andrews' exploit as he narrates It In
Natural Hist pry:
We were returning to Kalgan from
Urga, the capital of Mongolia, when
we made our discovery. Since the
oil had all leaked out of the cans, and
we could not go much farther, we
were debating what to do. Then as our
car swung over the summit of a rise
we saw the white tent and the graz
ing camels of an enormous caravan.
Of course Mongols would have mutton
fat; why not use that for oil?
The caravan leader assured us that
be had plenty, and In ten minutes a
great pot of fat was warming over
the fire. We poured it into the motor
and proceeded merrily on our way, but
there was one serious obstacle to our
enjoying that ride. We had had little
food for some time and were very
hungry, and when the engine began
to warm a most tantalizing odor of
roast lamb rose from the car. Short

On another occasion when we were
without cup grease for the cars Mrs.
Andrews sacrificed all the cold cream

FIRST AMERICAN GOLD COINS
What Are Known as Eagles Placed in
Circulation In the Year 1792
Bird as a Symbol.
The first American gold coinage of
eagles, hulf-eugles uud quarter-eagles,
of the value of $10, $5 and $ZJJ0, re
spectively, was placed in circulation
in 171. Since that date the United
States mints bave turned out 117,621),
3oo double eagles, or $20 gold pieces;
49.611.2S9 eagles, 74,360,570 half-eagles
und 15,580,203 quarter-eagles. One
and three-dollar gold pieces were for
merly coined, but they were discon
tinued in 1890.
The first coin called an eagle was
used in Ireland In the Thirteenth cen
tury, and was so called from the fig
ure of au eagle impressed upon it, but
It was made of base metal. The stand
ard of the eagle was borne by the an
cient Persians, and the Homans also
carried gold and silver eagles as en
signs and Mmetlmes represented them
with a thunderbolt in their talqns.
Charlemagne adopted the double
headed eagle as the standard of the
holy Roman empire. The eagle was
the standard of Napoleon I and .Nu

to secure himself and his Jcln lrjw

reward for bringing about the death
of another, directly or through evi

the Scandinavian and Teutonic peo
ples, who called this money payment
wergild. The price aried with the
nature of the crime and the rank of
the victim. Certaiu crimes, such as
the slaying of a sleeping person, could
not be compensated by a money pay

outlaws and could be slain with im
punity. The term is now often applied
to the reward or bribe paid for giving

Original Playing Cards.
The original pack, of cards was a
quiver of arrows. Piajing cards are
regarded as derived from th- divina

the cradle of civilization China or
India, says Stewart Culln, the archae

with marked arrows, and the
Museum of Archeology, University of
Pennsylvania, has several specimens
'of these primitive playing cards.
